Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

Christmas at the Little Waffle Shack by Helen J Rolfe – lovely festive romance with tasty treats!

Heritage Cove is in full swing for the festive season and as the temperature dips, who will be lucky in love this Christmas?

It’s December in Heritage Cove and along with the village Christmas tree, frosty mornings and the promise of the most wonderful time of the year, the new waffle shack is about to open. And its owner isn’t a stranger to the Cove, because after all this time, Daniel is back to make amends with his brother Harvey – as well as a few other locals he might have offended along the way.

Fairly new to the village, local blacksmith Lucy has kept up the pretence of being with her ex for the sake of his gran but she’s fed up with all the lies. Determined to come clean and live the life she wants to live, she’s devastated to find that her attraction to Daniel is tainted by the fact he’s hiding a few things of his own. And his secrets are ones she isn’t sure she’ll ever be able to get past.

Heritage Cove is full of friendship and community; it’s a welcoming place people visit and never want to leave. But will it work its magic for Daniel and Lucy?

A festive read packed with Christmas romance, love and second chances, this is Book 2 in a series of standalone novels set in Heritage Cove, the little village by the sea… 

My Review:

Do you like your waffles sweet or savoury? However you like them you’re sure to be able to have them in the Little Waffle Shack – the menu sounds absolutely delicious and it is such a great way to describe this lovely festive romance, too! It has plenty of family drama, secrets from the past, rumours and half-truths, friendship, romance and a lovely community, all skilfully blended to make a tasty treat whatever your taste in contemporary, sweet romances!

Daniel has returned home years after leaving the Cove. He had a trouble childhood and was a rebellious teen, but now he’s made something of his life and wants to right wrongs and reconnect with his big brother. He’s the owner of the Little Waffle Shack and is attracted to village blacksmith, Lucy, from the first time they meet. However both have secrets from their past and nothing can be resolved until all is revealed, but who knows how those revelations will impact on their relationship…

This is such a lovely read, a fabulous story of a family torn apart trying to reconnects, a community working together to support and meddle with the best intentions, giving plenty of laughs and putting a smile on your face. It is the second book in the Heritage Cove series and, although some of the characters are in both books, I believe it could still be enjoyed as a standalone, too.

Thank you to the author for my copy of this book which I have voluntarily read and honestly reviewed.
